Weapons and meth seized in Fort Rouge

Drug trafficking problem is on a rise in Canada for the last couple of years. Winnipeg authorities started a full-scale investigation into city`s meth problem. As per Winnipeg Police, there is a spike in meth-related crime incidents, like property theft, residential break-ins, unreasonable anger towards each other (meth users) and other people around them, violent attacks, some ending up in lethal outcomes for victims, lately there were three deadly beatings in just three days in the city, one of the incidents is already connected to meth use, two other cases are still under investigation.

Last Saturday, November 3rd Winnipeg Police had arrested a man with a large size machete and seized hundreds of dollars worth of methamphetamine.

Police arrested the man, and officers seized a large machete, two knives and approximately 3.42 grams of meth — an amount with an estimated street value of $450. Nicholas Alfred Wright, 43, was taken into custody and is now facing four charges: possession of a weapon, possession of break-in instruments, possession of methamphetamine and failure to comply with a probation order.

Unfortunately meth and other drug trafficking is a rising problem in Winnipeg, hopefully, police and local authorities will really concentrate on dedicating the funds and resolving this issue.
